to back him up. he simply drove out to the boondocks to get to know the people of the philippines. nasa and the embassy like semiofficial americans do today. he went out to figure out what was really going on. the most important thing that he did was identified a great leader who could leave the philippines out of this with some support. that was ramon, a filipino senator when he encountered in. he was pushed to make him the defense minister and then the president's. he was this great leader who routed out a lot of the corruption which was causing people to turn away from the philippine government. he ended the brutality on the part of the filipino army which was causing villagers to flee into the hands of the hunts. he established clean elections, and he basically took away all of the in the logical appeal that they could possibly have. this was an incredibly effective strategy and is something i want you to think about today because, for example, in afghanistan i think afghanistan is really suffered over the course of the last decade by not having great leaders, not having, as the pre

and microsoft is eager to open a new nasa develop a facility at our expense and loss. one of the most important parts of this legislation as i mentioned is that we are using fees from the newly expanded h-1b1 visas and green cards difference to initiative on standard this will keep america at the cutting edge of science and technology and fuel economic growth for this country and generations to come. while each of the co-authors of this legislation have a substantial contribution, i'm especially grateful to senator hatch of utah for his leadership of senator hatch, which itself a little bit more about this legislation? >> thank you, mr. koontz. >> senator from utah. >> i want to thank you, senator coons and senator klobuchar and senator rubio here as you can see, it's a real pleasure to work with these three partners. and others as well that will remain here before we're through here today. i particularly want to thank you for the overview you have given on this bill. it's been a real pleasure for me to work with you three very innovative leaders in the sena senate. but as a number of you have

would suggest certainly don't have much to do with sandy. $15 million for nasa repairs at the kennedy space center in florida. $274 million for the coast guard acquisitions in the bahamas and the great lakes. $2 million for the smithsonian repairs. there's another whole category of items which is tens of billions of dollars, which is long-term construction projects for the mitigation against future storms and disasters. now is that an important expenditure by the federal government? probably is. probably should be a high priority. but is it an emergency? of course not. it's infrastructure. it's going to be spent over years, maybe decades, as we build sea walls to protect beaches off the coast from future storms which are years away. now, is that an important consideration? i think it is. but when you're running trillion-dollar deficits, i think it has to compete with the other legitimate demands, for the long-term spending and infrastructure spending and the ways that we're going to protect our country, and so many other ways as well. but we have no such process here. and that's part

it -- it is real li startling. the nation nasa demand yearly for 120,000 computer science engineers, but our universities only produce 40,000 people a year. now, this is an indictment of our educational system. we need to fix that. we need to get to a point in this country where we have 120,000 people graduate being to meet the demand. but in the short-term we have to deal with the fact that of our 80,000 graduates are not creating here, those jobs are still going to exist. they are a just not going to exist here. these companies aren't going to wait for us to produce more graduates. these companies aren't going to wait for us to fix our immigration system. they have got a business to run. if they can't find the people they need to fill those jobs, they will send the jobs to another country. that means that these high-paying jobs in these industries will be paying the taxes in some other country, will be stimulating the economy in some other country, will be laying down roots in some other nation. you want know why america is special? because over 200 years we have been a magnet that attract

. gary, what are you expect a nasa governor makes its way up? >> s. moderate of these features you can expect with brian schweizer in his governorship. he can use whatever packard bell ontrack capital he has. he has a big month ahead of the work that will then come to his desk so he can do what his job is. >> is that what tonight is about, the tone and tenor is not too much due to this point, but setting a tone. a lot of it talked about in the previous three weeks since i got this session underway. >> the optimism in the last three weeks is genuine. i visited a couple times, almost quite a coincidence. i sense there's a good positive spirit always taken place there. and i think bullock thinks that it will keep that going. >> we hope you're right. preparing to deliver his state of the state address. as we said, about a 45 minute speech. of course quite a bit different. let's listen in now to governor steve bullock. >> now to present to you, the governor of the state of montana, the honorable steve bullock.
